FO: Hanataba Hat

I had some leftovers from my Hanataba Shawl (which I haven’t blocked yet, so no official FO post!) and I had a crazy idea to use laceweight for a hat, with the brim having doubled laceweight.  It turned out really nicely and I got several compliments the first day I wore it.  But before I blocked it, it looked very… strange:

You can see that it’s still quite scrunched up looking.  I was afraid it wouldn’t block out nicely and that the whole idea was a terrible one.

However my fears were unfounded.  It’s nice and slouchy and stays well on my head, despite the wind at school.  (My school is on a hill and it’s quite breezy up there.)

The difference is not that dramatic, but I think it’s still apparent.  Everything is a lot smoother.

The construction of this hat is similar but different from my shawl.  Similar enough to name them the same, but different enough to need another chart.  I can definitely see myself making hats with the same construction in the future, it’s quite fun and I finished in a day!  I’m still plugging away on the charts, though.

    Well, my first thought was, “How did you post?!?” and then I realized, duh, you’re not on Blogger… and then my second thought was, “Wow, that did block nicely!” So you have me seething with jealousy on two counts!

    oooo that looks good either way but yeah blocking changes it a bit to more refined and perfect :] no frontal view? xD
